The Scion tC, which was launched as a 2005 model late in 2004. While it has received minor updates since its inception, there have been no significant changes since it rolled off the factory floor 5 years ago. Since then time has moved on even though the tC hasn't. This has resulted in slumping sales over the last few years. However, a new model is slated to arrive next year, which should breathe fresh air into this aging model. Despite its age, the tC remains a fairly stylish option when it comes to compact coupes. This is a testament to the original styling but also due, at least in part to the relative lack of competition in its market. It has been a Scion tradition to only offer one spec of each model, along with a considerable number of options and accessories. The tC bucks that somewhat by offering two trim levels, a base and the higher end Release 6.0. Power for both models comes from a 161 HP 2.4 liter four cylinder engine driving a five speed manual or a 4 speed automatic transmission.
